Welcome to our hill sheep farm, situated above the River Dove near Milldale.

Hill View Farm

Hill View Farm

Hill View Farm is a working farm situated on the outskirts of Bicester, on the Buckinghamshire/Oxfordshire border.

At Hill View we enjoy fabulous views across the Aylesbury Vale and provide high quality bed and breakfast accommodation for the Bicester area together with glamping in our shepherd’s hut.  Whilst situated in a tranquil location there is nearby access to Junction 9 of the M40 which together with the main line railway brings London within a 45 minute journey by train or 1 hour by car. Cycle route 51 is very close by and a totem pole style marker is positioned on the roadside at the boundary of our farm so we are also perfectly situated for a few nights stay if cycling this route.

Dogs Go Glamping!

Dogs Go Glamping!

Brits love dogs - it’s a fact. Now four-legged friends are being invited on dog-friendly glamping breaks with their owners at Dog Days Holidays in South Wales for their own little bit of luxury.

Sue and Roger Edwards set up Raven’s Retreat, a glamping shepherd hut retreat for people with dogs, two years ago as their Dog Days Holidays accommodation.

Sue says: ‘Glamping was an option to give everyone, dogs included, an outdoor break with a great deal of comfort, which is why we decided to have dog-friendly facilities both inside and attached to the accommodation. Living in Powys, where there are more sheep than people, it seemed appropriate to choose a shepherd’s hut!’

Fed up of camping? It’s time to get glamping!

Fed up of camping? It’s time to get glamping!

A glamper will never look back once their head has been turned by a spot of glamorous camping! It’s the perfect solution for those of us who delight in the outdoors but can’t face sleeping on a cold hard mat - not to mention that dreaded trudge to the shower block in the morning…
You can pack up your rucksack and get close to nature once more now that endless options for ‘glamorous camping’ have come to the fore.
From eco pods and yurts to tipis and shepherds huts, there are so many ways to make your glamping experience a special one.

Dog lovers are aware that dogs aren’t always welcome on family holidays, but Daisy Meadows Glamping in Devon is different, welcoming dogs as special guests with its Happy Hounds Doggy Day Crèche.

 

Tina Walters, who has run Daisy Meadows since 2013, is a dog lover who knows how difficult it can be for dog owners to get away on a break. That’s why she set up her doggy day crèche at Daisy Meadows, a safari tent glamping site near the Blackdown Hill’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Devon.
